Giganta

Post by Bright Raven » Fri Feb 01, 2019 8:25 am

This bull calf is registered as Giganta. He was banded at birth due to a 123 pound birth weight. I register everything because I am in the THE program.

Giganta was born 9/20/2018.  He is 133 days old today.  Sired by Broadway.  Birthweight was 123 pounds. He is a horse. For comparison, that is one of my biggest cows!

Here he was on his birthday:

Here he is today:

I would have bought him as a bull. I need to “mash” some scales.

You missed your chance. I have a deal in the works with Fire Sweep. I am trading my Broadway Semen for her Grandmaster Semen. She does not get the big calves like I do out of Broadway.

That's a good size calf for such cow.
